March to the Beat Jan and Feb

I am participating in a swap on Splitcoast Stampers called March to the Beat. Each month, I receive a stamped image to create a card with. I add my own papers, coloring tools, dies, or anything else needed to complete a card with the image provided.

The above images are from January. I was provided this elephant from Unity Stamp Company, the greeting and the DSP. (This is SU patterned paper which they call Designer Series Paper.) The greeting was stamped in Island Indigo ink. She did provide the name of the DSP, but I do not have it handy. To complete my card, I colored the elephant in colors that matched the DSP. I placed the greeting on the inside.

The French Fry image was provided along with the greeting. I colored the French fry image and fussy cut it out, popping it up on an action wobbler and added googly eyes. The dotted background is made with a stencil. The Happy Valentine’s Day and I heart You are from a Lawn Fawn set. I used Spellbinders dies for most of the circles and the dotted circle inside is a retired Stampin Up die. I may give this to my husband. He does enjoy puns.

Since this card uses a stencil, I am entering it in February Stencil Fun:

Thanks for sharing in my cards.

    1. Thanks! I looked the patterned paper up to see what the colors were. I have markers for all of the colors except one and I have an ink pad and Q-tips which were used for that one. It is a different kind of card for me.

      The French fries was fun to create. I was at a loss when it arrived, but finally figured something out.

    1. Thanks! I haven’t participated much in your challenge as I forget about it. This time the email came through right after I posted, so I could edit and get this card in the gallery.

  1. That elephant is awesome Lisa. I love the animal and used to collect them many years ago. The fries card is so cute and the swap seems like a fun way to do cards.
